But 4 of those are only integer cores. Not really useful for most stuff.

Those integer cores increase my Crysis 3 performance by 40-50%, what's considered useful?

How does this CPU compare to an i5 3570K for gaming use (when overclocking of course)?

Ivy Bridge is better for gaming in nearly every game. Think of these as only quad core for floating point math. Which is important for gaming.

But doesn't quite do as good a job at it as Ivy Bridge does?

It's inferior to Ivy Bridge expect in the area of where all 8 integer cores are fully utilized, like in video encoding tasks.

But its price/performance ratio is pretty good.
